The Pirates lost to Milwaukee today, 20-0. Worst loss in the nearly century-and-one-half history of a once-proud franchise that has become the worst team in the history of major professional sports in America. Worst of the worst.
To understand the Nutting family's plan for the Pirates, check the Ogden Newspapers portfolio, which consists entirely of poor-quality but highly profitable operations in second-, third- or fourth-tier locations. Some Ogden publications do not even qualify as newspapers (the "weekly shoppers" and "green tabs").
